Well check the sides of your PC and see if you have your serial on there. Since you used a Serial from the net to install you need to Call M$ and explain what happened. Kinda hide the fact you used a net found serial. They should give you a activation ID that will allow you XP to activate.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!
